Her work has included service in Haiti, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Kenya, and Niger as well as frequent collaboration with the Pan-African Academy of Christian Surgeons.
- Mrs. Marilyn Tank was born in Taiwan and served as a missionary there throughout her life, helping to establish the famous Mustard Seed Mission, an organization originally dedicated for many years to caring for lepers and patients with blackfoot disease. Since that time Mustard Seed Mission has greatly expanded it scope of ministries and is now known as Mustard Seed International.
